Scheduled to be released this month is the 1/7 scale figure rendition of Purple Heart from the game Hyperdimension Neptunia (超次元ゲイム ネプテューヌ). I’ve seen the game reviewed by major review sites but I haven’t tried playing it. It’s an old game (PS3) and based on the reviews, the game is somewhat “bland” ^^; I do like the game’s overal character designs though.
For current-gen console owners, there’s a sequel released way back in 2016 for the PS4 called Megadimension Neptunia VII. It’s still from the same company and although it did receive a couple of gameplay and graphical improvements, the game was still poorly received by critics and is mostly designed for the hardcore fans of the series.
